I'm 25 weeks pregnant and have been looking for work for the past month and half after getting laid off. I've had several interviews, but so far nothing has panned out. Baby is due mid-September. Is it too late at this point? Should I just stop looking and wait until after the baby is born? This has been such a stressful time.
Any good chair recommendations??? I’ve been WFH a lot recently and my back really hurts :(
Asking for a raise. I currently make under 45k. My rent is increasing this year, cost of living in my area is going up and I need a raise. Not want, but need. What is the best way to approach this conversation with my manager? Additionally, what’s a decent percentage to ask for? I want to ask for a higher %, because my employer will definitely push back. I’ve done nothing but work from home and save this past year. I don’t want to eat up what I’ve saved just because I won’t get a raise.
When you WFH and then a partner asks to meet... *shaves in 30 seconds, throws suit on, sprints to subway*
I have an interview on Friday that includes a finance quiz. They say everything is included and you don’t really need background knowledge. Still want to know something. What should I look at?
It took WFH to realize that consulting is not fulfilling at all and the only thing that made it feel fulfilling and important was the points and being able to interact with the client in person. Wow.
Who else thinks that very few clients will want us back on site, and not in the same numbers if they do? I am anecdotally hearing from some of my former clients that they may be phasing out office space and allowing WFH for all employees. 💁🏼
internal transfer interview offer but required to disclose to current manager. I would like to move but I just got hired 6 months ago. want to initiate the convo. Too risky? current manager loves me.
Applied for a strategy role and recruiting team asked me to interview for a different process improvement/innovation role. Does this mean I’m ruled out for the initial role? Can I ask about it during the call? New role is same YOE requirement but title demotion
Can someone shed some insight on Deloitte Digital? Have an interview with them on their Customer Strategy team
Received an automated rejection email from a company... Four hours later, the recruiter reached out to schedule the third round interview. Huh? Am I living in the movie Groundhog Day?
Where are the best places to have a video interview?! It’s in the middle of my workday and I don’t live close to the office. GO!
Really proud to say am sticking to my intermittent fasting 18/6 in a month of wfh where it is very tempting to snack. Has been hard but one thing in life I feel I can actually control. We can do this!
Couple months into a new FT gig. Love most of my team. Cannot stand my partner (did not meet them during the interview process, big mistake). I’m bored more often than I’m busy and going stir crazy...
If remote is the future, how soon before most tech jobs are outsourced to India/Philippines/Eastern Europe and other places where the wages are substantially low? Why would companies still pay Bay Area salaries? Please don’t cite time difference and co-location as reasons bc they are simply not big enough.
Does Salesforce ask applicants to provide references or performance review information at any point of the interview process or when an offer is extended? Concerned because I didn't receive stellar performance reviews this quarter due to utilization
Silly question - but what is the impact if my salary doesn’t meet prevailing wage? What can the firm do?
Which groups at Deloitte have layoffs been particularly heavy? Which groups were mostly unaffected?
Finally had the "call my mom crying because of work" moment yesterday. I just hope I can hang on until bonus.
What do people leave for? I'm just curious because I'm thinking of taking a pay cut to get out of PA for my mental health. Thinking I need a break from strict hours so I don't think industry will be a good fit either. Anyone have any nontraditional career paths after PA that were super flexible and resulted in a pay bump?
Salary for the equivalent of a Creative Director in LA? Client Side. Is it possible to have good quality of life while living in the city?
I’d really like to move to London from the US. Unsure if it’s worth waiting for an internal company transfer (who knows how long this could take-potentially years) vs looking for a new job where a company would sponsor my visa. Anyone have experience with moving across the pond for work?
Am I understanding utilization rate correctly? It’s chargeable time over total time? Charged 40 hours and had 10 hours non-charge so my utilization is 80%? If so, wouldn’t it benefit me to understate non-charge hours so my utilization is higher since they only really care about chargeable time anyways? Charge 40 hours still but only put 5 hours non-charge for utilization to be 89% instead of 80%? Or am I misunderstanding how utilization works?
Anybody know where to find a good resume template looking for exit opps? Mine hasn’t been update since I was an undergrad
I am going to resign from TCS within a week. My question is, will my salary increment in notice period or it will be same as it is now ?
Some of the people on my team trash talked about one lady that was on maternity leave last busy season. I am 3mo pregnant and feel like they will do the same thing to me when I announce and on leave 🤬
Starting my role in FDD soon any tips? Specifically asking because im a top performer in audit, early promoted to manager this year and was fortunate to keep my promotion and transfer to FDD as a manager. top notch excel/vba/macro and data skills with alteryx,BI and tableau. I know its going to be a big learning curve so want to make sure i don’t drown especially as a manager.
So I'm sick hanging out at my aunts place and she's trying to explain to a friend what my job is because I have absolutely no voice. She is so flustered trying to explain consulting and data science.
